Biotech 8 Expansion (Phases I & II) Virginia Biotechnology Research Park
Richmond, Virginia

In 2011, McKinney and Company provided full-service design and construction management for a six-story, 108,700 SF building addition for Health Diagnostics Laboratory (HDL), leader in health management. The building addition to Biotech 8 includes laboratories, offices, training, and wellness/fitness areas, as well as spaces for warehousing and logistics. The project also added two levels of parking for 200 additional vehicles to the existing, adjacent parking deck.

Prior to HDL occupancy of the Phase I Addition in 2013, McKinney began design of Biotech 8 – Phase II Expansion of six stories, 205,000 SF to provide additional logistics, office, employees amenities and laboratory shell spaces for HDL. Occupancy is planned for April 2014.

In 2014, McKinney completed design for laboratory upfit for floors 2 and 3 of the expansion, totaling 33, 200 SF.

For the past six years, McKinney has provided design and engineering support for the growth of Health Diagnostics Laboratory in the Biotech 8 building on the Virginia Biotechnology Research Park campus. This work has included expansion of utility systems, air, nitrogen, humidity control, emergency power, waste handling and special needs for sensitive testing equipment.
